How do I run Intellij 11 in 64-Bit mode in Win-7?

How do I run Intellij 11 in 64-Bit mode in Win-7? I have seen comments for Intellij 10 to run idea64.exe (or something to that effect), but it doesn't exist in IntelliJ 11. Is there a different installer? Searching the docs finds nothing on 64-bit.

Really, not a single reply for such a basic question, this is amazing? So I'm to assume Intellij 11 doesn't support 64-bit mode I guess. I sure would be nice if Intellij developers would read this discussion board.

The bin directory of the IntelliJ 11 installation should have a idea.exe and idea64.exe.  

My installation has them located here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\JetBrains\IntelliJ IDEA 11.0.1\bin\idea.exe
C:\Program Files (x86)\JetBrains\IntelliJ IDEA 11.0.1\bin\idea64.exe

Likewise there's a idea.exe.vmoptions and idea64.exe.vmoptions file for the VM options.

Thanks for the reply,

Your answer makes sense except my install directory doesn't contain:
C:\Program Files (x86)\JetBrains\IntelliJ IDEA 11.0.1\bin\idea64.exe or idea64.exe.vmoptions

Are you using the community edition?  I don't believe that comes with 64-bit support.

Yes, then that would explain it. Only why have 64-bit dll's like IdeaWin64.dll and others? That would imply it has 64-bit capabilities but maybe there just not implemented yet.

U can use idea64.exe from IDEA UE, or use from my issue http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-81577, idea-exe-UPDATE 1.rar/idea64.exe, if had errors I'ill fix it

Look in the bin directory. There are two executables, one for 32 bit
and one for 64. Just start the 64-bit one . Make an icon on your task
bar.

Thanks for the help but if it's not part of the comunity edition I'll just wait. I'm just surprised that's all.

Hi,

Full details in my blog at http://www.nstech.co.uk but short answer is to use idea.bat and configure the JDK you use to launch IDEA.

HTH.

Paul.

I gave this a try but got errors when running the idea.bat file (see below). I duplicated the idea.exe.vmoptions to idea64.exe.vmoptions. I don't hava a JAVA_HOME variable but I have a JDK_HOME. So I moved the JDK_HOME lines of code up to the top.

Strange! Maybe it is a Win7 thing then. Can you send me your batch file - phopkins@nstech.co.uk - and I will give it a try. What JDK are you using? What is your JDK_HOME set to?
